you think president obama was trying to go for a year ago when he created this group in. >> if the public is lusting for ceos being perp walked over the financial crieses they're not going to get it with this and may not ever because they haven't been able to build the criminal cases, they're tough to make, if there was criminal conduct you have to get the lower executives to plead or cooperate. >> is there anything to indicate there are criminal cases that could come from these things in. >> this doesn't read like a criminal case. it reads like a civil case, like a lot of the plaintiffs' cases. rather than focus on a specific deal like the sec suit against goldman sachs it talks about sort of a broad range of conduct, where we know these banks were churning out these mortgage-backed securities and based on this, doing this without a lot of care. >> is it harder and harder the longer we get from all of these actions? >> we're getting to the five-year statute of limitations on securities fraud, they're running up against that and you have the pressure of election time, pr

sentiment was such that at least earlier in the year that the the multiple might contract if obama won. so we weren't making a political call. i'll let you guys -- >> now it's gk oing up because it's anticipating an obama win this. >> i've been surprised about that, that maybe the multiple isn't impacted by the presidential election. i guess we have the debate next week. but i think it's been more about fed policy. >> there are those that say that the market hates uncertainty. and that we know what we got the past four years and even though everyone -- maybe certain players don't like the way it has been treated, but the market's done pretty well. so at least it knows what it's getting if obama is reelected. >> nobody seems to be worried about anything in the near term. but the earnings -- fundamentals matter and i believe they will again. i think the earnings -- >> you're arguing you'll be right eventually. >> i hope so. >> is that a good question? >> what keeps me up at night is if the earnings reflect being up and i miss it. that's what i want to get right. >> you look at the late '90s,
